French scientists from the Toulouse University Hospital Center conducted a study and called the expressiveness of wrinkles in humans as one of the signals that a person is prone to premature death. informs Medic Forum.
The study involved 3200 people aged 32 to 62 years. The experiment lasted 20 years. During this period, 233 people died.
Each person who underwent the experiment was assigned a score ranging from zero to three, with the lowest number being completely wrinkle-free and the highest being a plurality of deep wrinkles. According to the statistics obtained by the experts, it turned out that those people who had more wrinkles on their foreheads had a significantly lower risk of low life expectancy than those who had no wrinkles at all. So the people who died an early death, who were assigned two and three points, turned out to be ten times more than the subjects with zero points. The experiment included adjustments for age, gender, education, smoking, blood pressure, heart rate, diabetes, and blood lipids.
Scientists explained this by the fact that deep and numerous wrinkles often indicate a tendency of people to cardiovascular diseases. They believe this could explain the link between wrinkles and mortality.
Earlier, Andrey Bobrovsky, Candidate of Medical Sciences, Nutritionist, Associate Professor of the Faculty of Medicine of St. Petersburg State University, said that collagen protein helps maintain skin elasticity. Many cream manufacturers add it to their creams as a way to get rid of wrinkles.
